Auckland

P1080257

Since we had already toured around Auckland a few years prior we used our morning there to stock up on some much needed supplies.   Keeks and Bodie were in horrible moods and so we decided to leave them in kid’s club for the afternoon and take Cracker to the maritime museum.  While there we got the opportunity to go for an hour long harbor cruise on a reproduction of an early 1800 scow.  Scows are two-masted flat bottom sailboats, with a retractable center plate, that could be beached and then loaded with cargo – effectively the trucks of New Zealand in the 1800s.  We got to help raise the sails and the all-volunteer crew was really friendly and informative.  It was nice to have just one kid for an afternoon – so peaceful.
